ANSWER: Dear SP

tHANK YOU for the enquiry

Since you are wearing toric lenses ideally it will be better if you are OFF contact lenses for atleast 1 to 2 weeks before surgery maybe more if you lenses are tight depending on the measurements on your eye examinations, the longer the better because any contact lenses cause change in curvature of the eye causing difference in measurements so once you remove contact lenses for some time the corneal curvature willl come to its original shape and then your FINAL AND CORRECT measurements can be taken to feed the actual data into the laser machine for your LASIK correction

Dear SP

INFACT you symptoms may decrease after laser, since you have high cylindrical errors which causes distortions and haloes, IF your operating surgeon feels ok and your PARAMETERS are perfect please go ahead with LASIK and i am sure you will do extremely well
